Notes

Underworld's "Born Slippy" gets merged with Pink Floyd's "Is There Anybody Out There?" and Woodstock stage announcements concerning the Brown Acid.

The words of Hani "The Big Dark mash-up from 1997 made famous by Jonathan Peters at the Sound Factory, NYC. JP suggested to me to work together on remixing “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd. We took his idea even further by mashing it up with a big track at the time “Born Slippy” by Underworld. The Brown Acid name came from the sample used from the Woodstock Movie. Somehow it added another dimension to this mash-up. Thanks JP ! It Was Fun doing this."

I just bought this one on a vinyl market. It is absolutely one of my favorites! The pounding drums and synths in combination with woodstock and pink floyd! Indeed an immortal classic! I can confirm that this one came in a white outer sleeve with golden letters printed on it (right on top) which says: "ment for promonitional use only not for sale ...", and so on.

Not to sure what copy I have then as I have a white promo, one sided with the main track fading in, Woodstock/ Pink Floyd sample, underworld beat, Pink Floyd sample then more Underworld beats and fading out at the end with the faithless sample.
The second track fades in with the Woodstock sample and then drops in a looped synth stab and then plays off into Underworld and then fades out!!

Does anybody else's vinyl like this???

The original promo came in a white sleeve that had wording printed in gold lettering on the cover , plus am bemused with the such low pricing of this said immortal classic bootleg ..

imo it's priceless ..

The B side version was played by both Pete Tong and Paul Oakenfold during their sets at Creamfields 1998, both occasions broadcast on Radio 1's The Essential Mix.

It's only now since I have finally purchased this record I have become aware that they both mixed out around the 6 minute mark when the main Pink Floyd part plays, the track continues for another 4 or so minutes taking in some Faithless-Insomnia Lead Riff pluck style instrument randomly.

The A side begins with the Woodstock sample and uses the Born Slippy Nuxx intro synth line proper, eliminating the pluck part from the B side version.

Yeah i agree theres a good chance it was aphex who did this. Production on it is superb. Used to play this all the time to great reactions in the late 90's. The merge from underworld to floyd then back again is perfect. think i will have to dig this one out to hear it again and see if its still as good as i remember. Only bugger is the way it starts. pain in the ass to bring in neatly mid set but who cares?

I remember the first time I heard this, thinking it was a takeout of some awesome mix tape. Whoever did it, managed to mix the stabbed riff of Underworld's "Born Slippy" into Pink Floyds floating "Is There Anybody Out There?" making it the perfect paranoid sound track to those unfortunate enough to end up with the brown acid during Woodstock back in 1969. Dont quote me on it, but Ive heard from different sources that this actually was the work of Aphex Twin, wouldnt suprise me if it was though, as I couldnt think of many other artists who could merge Pink Floyd with Underworld and still get away without it sounding like some cheesy mashup.... Essential!
